COPY PROTECTION (SCMS)
As a digital audio component, this MD recorder
conforms with the Serial Copy Management System
(SCMS) standards. The Serial Copy Management
System restricts copies made by recording digital signals
to first-generation copies only. Therefore, an MD
recorded through a digital input cannot be used as a
source for making another digital recording.
Care of MDs
• Do not expose the MD to direct sunlight or heat
sources such as hot air ducts, nor leave it in a car
parked in direct sunlight as there can be a
considerable rise in temperature inside the car.
• Periodically remove dust and debris from the cartridge
surface by wiping it with a dry cloth.
• Because the MD itself is housed in a cartridge, you
can handle it normally without being concerned about
dirt or fingerprints. However, malfunctioning may
result if the cartridge itself is dirty or warped.
Do not open the shutter on the MD cartridge
Trying to force the shutter open will damage the shutter.
